Alberta has the broadest scope of pharmacy practice and the most comprehensive reimbursement opportunities.

Pharmacists must position themselves as essential healthcare providers and bring enough value to patients to ensure the stability and viability of their pharmacy practice in this era of technical disruption.

Carlene Oleksyn, a practising community pharmacist in Alberta who holds prescribing authorization, is a Certified Travel Health pharmacist and is a Certified Diabetes Educator, delves further into this topic in this presentation.

Carlene discusses changes that are happening in pharmacy as a result of technical disruptions, shares how further digitization can impact your practice, and provides you with viable solutions.

Carlene offers practical examples on how you can start to provide value to your patients to prepare for the future ahead.
